"Clive Cussler, "The Grand Master of Adventure," sends his intrepid heroes Dirk Pitt and Al Giordino on their wildest, boldest mission into the ancient world, unlocking extraordinary secrets and solving hideous crimes. Another fabulous read from the most beloved series from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author. The murders of a team of United Nations scientists in El Salvador. A deadly collision in the waterways off the city of Detroit. An attack by tomb raiders on an archaeological site along the banks of the Nile. Is there a link between these violent events? The answer may lie in the tale of an Egyptian princess forced to flee the armies of her father three thousand years ago. During what was supposed to be a routine investigation in South America, NUMA Director Dirk Pitt finds himself embroiled in an international mystery, one that will lead him across the world and which will threaten everyone and everything he knows--most importantly, his own family. Pitt travels to Scotland in search of answers about the spread of an unknown disease and the shadowy bioremediation company that may be behind it. Meanwhile, his son and daughter face a threat of their own when the discoveries they have made in an Egyptian tomb put killers on their trail. These seemingly unrelated riddles come together in a stunning showdown on the rocky isles of Ireland, where only the Pitts can unravel the secrets of an ancient enigma that could change the very future of mankind"-- Provided by publisher.

There's usually a kernel of truth behind every myth.

The background history of the story was intriguing, but the book dragged on a little longer than was needed or wanted.

This book seems to be devoid of all emotion. It was unpleasant to read even though the story line was quite complex. It is a sterile narrative and not a satisfying read.

CELTIC EMPIRE by Clive & Dirk Cussler is another fun book from the NUMA series. As usual, it starts with historical setting, this one in Egypt, that sets the stage for something happening in modern times. That something is an intentional, man-made eco-disaster that NUMA has to help thwart. It is an interesting ride that included North Africa and extends north to include Scotland and Ireland. And if you are Irish, Skellig Michael plays a prominent role. Unlike diehard historical novelists, Cussler never addresses the degree to which his "historical" background represents known or imaginary events. Usually, I am in it just because his books are fun reads. In this case, I would like to know if there really is a connection between ancient Egypt and early Ireland. On my "to do" list now.
